In 2010 when I first started listening to KLOVE Christian radio, I heard the passion in the words for Jesus. They ignited something inside me I had never found, but had always longed for. They sang of an unconditional love. I had forgotten what it meant to be a Christian. I realized that I was now on the outside looking in, and I wanted to get back in desperately. I wasn't sure at that point how to get what they were singing about, but I knew I wanted it.
My past church experiences have not been positive. I found that Christians can be very judgmental. If you're not in their clique then you are an outsider to be looked down on. That never seemed very Christian-like to me. Nor did it make me feel like I wanted to be one of them. The ones who I refer to ask practicing heresy. They preach the Bible, but if you talk the talk you shouldn't you be walking the walk?
I'm thinking that if you know God's word then you should be doing what you can to share that wonderful knowledge with those who don't. That's where I'm lacking. I want to care about the souls that do not yet know there is truly something better for them and He's called Jesus Christ. I'm beginning with my son. He tries hard to show patiene and not to tune me out or get angry when I push a little too hard, but I know I haven't penetrated his heart yet. I'm going to let Jesus do that, but I'm still praying every day for him to let this happen. So, if I'm struggling with my own son, how can I possibly attempt this with a stranger? After all, I'm still in the process of walking my own path back to Christ and becoming Born-Again. I still have so many questions myself. How can I effectively answer someone else's?
I think that on my judgment, God will look at how I've stood by and watched others suffer and see that I did nothing because I simply thought I could do nothing. I have to believe that all things are possible with God and take head on my sense of responsibility for spreading His word to others while working on my own faith. This blog is going to be about my path in doing so with my failures and, I pray, my accomplishments.
